Location: Hyatt Regency Baltimore Inner Harbor
300 Light Street
Baltimore, MD 21202

Katz, Sapper & Miller’s Beth Scott, a director in the firm’s Veterinary Services Group, will present at the Veterinary Hospital Managers Association’s (VHMA) 2018 Annual Meeting and Conference. Taking place Oct. 18-20 in Baltimore, MD, the event will focus on equipping veterinary hospital managers with the best practices they need to thrive.

Scott’s session, “Raising the Standard: What a New Chart of Accounts Means to You,” will discuss how a veterinary-specific chart of accounts can help hospitals ensure good financial reporting and enable them to benchmark their hospital’s performance. The new veterinary-specific chart of accounts, which was introduced last year, was created by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) and Veterinary Management Groups (VMG). Scott’s session will explain the implications of the new chart of accounts and give attendees practical tips on how to implement it at their hospitals.

In “Trending Now: Secrets of Profitable Emergency and Specialty Hospitals,” Scott will review data and statistics from emergency and specialty veterinary hospitals, including total revenue, direct costs, efficiency ratios, and more. Attendees can evaluate how their hospital stacks up to others in the industry and can pinpoint factors that can improve their own profitability.

In addition to the day-to-day management of one of the largest national veterinary benchmarking databases, Scott works with clients to provide actionable solutions to their complex business challenges. She frequently speaks at veterinary conferences and conventions across the country, focusing on equipping veterinary owners and practice managers with the tools they need to improve hospital profitability.

The conference will also address other hot topics in the veterinary industry, including anticipatory leadership, developing and retaining talent, and implementing innovative technology.
